Get Wild with Wild Rose

Did you know?

Rosa canina, the very first of all the roses, has been repeatedly used as a symbol of life, soul, heart and love. The word rosa comes from the Greek word “rodon”, which means red. According to the myth the rose used to be white until Aphrodite, hurrying to save her dying protégé, Adonis, got hurt from the prickles of a rose and stained with blood its white petals. Since then, the roses are thought to be Aphrodite’s flowers and they are used to symbolize the regeneration.

Fans of Korres Wild Rose range can now rejoice as Korres introduces three NEW additions to the Wild Rose family: Wild Rose Exfoliating Cleanser, Wild Rose Eye Cream with SPF 15 and Wild Rose 24hr moisturising and brightening cream.

 

Wild Rose oil, the main ingredient of the Wild Rose range, has high vitamin C level which drives significant repairing activity to fine lines and skin colour disorders. It is also rich in linoleic and linolenic acid, demonstrating significant healing, moisturising and softening properties. In addition, it forms a protective film on the skin that helps cell regeneration and improves the texture of the epidermis.

 

Introducing the 3 NEW additions to the Wild Rose family

  • Wild Rose Exfoliating Cleanser
  • Wild Rose 24hr Moisturising and Brightening Cream

(for oily and combination skin)

  • Wild Rose Eye Cream with SPF 15

 

1) Product Name: Wild Rose Exfoliating Cleanser

Specifications: All skin types

Price: S$48, 150ml

Description: A gentle, yet potent exfoliating cleanser suitable for daily use that provides effective, soap free cleansing and brightening, without dehydrating the skin.

Its other active ingredients include a combination of natural exfoliating grains derived from Rice seeds and Cherry stones that gently cleanse the skin from impurities and excess sebum. The Wild Rose Exfoliating Cleanser also contains a natural blend of Bilberry, Sugar, Orange & Lemon extracts which is a rich source of naturally occurring alpha hydroxy acids that smoothes and conditions the skin by enhancing cell renewal while promoting skin radiance. Salicylic acid works by exerting remarkable micro-exfoliating action, removing dead skin cells of the epidermis while improving skin texture. Furthermore, natural polysaccharides in combination with Aloe extract protect the skin by providing instant anti-irritant and moisturising action.

Tested on 20 volunteers between the age of 25 and 55 years old for 4 weeks, it has been clinically proven that the Wild Rose Exfoliating Cleanser improves skin softness and smoothness while offering cleansing and brightening action without dehydrating the skin. In addition, it further enhances skin radiance while maintaining skin moisturisation.

2) Product Name: Wild Rose 24hr moisturising and brightening cream

Specifications: Oily and Combination Skin

Price: S$58, 40ml

 

Description: Wild Rose oil, the key ingredient in this product, is a natural source of vitamin C, that drives significant repairing activity to fine lines and skin colour disorders, while adding brightness and radiance to the skin. Other product ingredients include Phytic acid that works as an antioxidant, skin lightener and anti-ageing factor, Olive oil that nourishes and moisturises the skin and Grape seed extract that provides antioxidant protection.

Its secret ingredient lies in the Imperata Cylindrica extract [Moist-24] which ensures 24-hour moisturising by continually regulating the cellular water equilibrium.

Tested on 20 volunteers between the age of 21 and 60 years old for 24 hours, it has been clinically proven effective for 24 hour moisturising action and skin radiance enhancement.

The information above is extracted from Enavose press release kit

My personal thought on this product:

Packaging wise, this product is very handy. It’s very easy to bring this anywhere; it’s very lightweight and it’s in a good size to be put in a bag. The spray button at the top of the bottle is also made very safe, meaning it’s very unlikely that the liquid is going to be accidentally sprayed inside your bag. The texture of this UV mist is very light, I personally dislike a sunblock or a UV Mist that’s very light in texture. I feel that it doesn’t give me enough protection. I am aware that this is SPF 45 but when the texture is very light, I don’t really feel I am getting enough protection. However I think this product is good to be applied as a second layer. When I have been exposed to the sun for more than 3 hours, usually I will reapply my sun screen and I think this product is a good choice for that.

Browhauz Experience and Lash Grow Serum

Few weeks ago I went to Browhaus Paragon to try their service. The service that I tried was brow shaping (tweezing and threading) together with color tweak. I usually tweeze my own eyebrow and rarely do it professionally. I am quite contented with my natural eyebrow (plus eyebrow pencil for sure 😉 ) thus not really going for any professional service. So let’s start with the introduction of Browhaus Paragon.

Browgraphy

BROWHAUS the Brow Expert’s all-in-one brow treatment Browgraphy is set to take your arches to even greater heights, giving you a complete makeover in just under an hour. Comprising a powerful duo: Color Tweak and Brow Shaping, expect total transformation as the shape and color of your brows are reworked to perfection.

Color Tweak adjusts the color of your brows to your preference, using vegetable dye for 100% safety and maximum comfort. It only takes 10-15 minutes to alter your appearance. Lighter brows have a softening effect while darker brows sharpen features and add definition. Your brows will also be more in sync with newly dyed hair.

Brow Shaping is a necessity for perfectly tinted brows to be groomed and shaped to complement your facial features. Take your pick from Classic Threading, Modern Tweezing or Thread + Tweeze. Classic Threading removes stray hair strands in a row resulting in a clean and natural-looking brow line, perfect for the boys. Modern Tweezing offers great precision for a well-defined brow shape. Thread + Tweeze combines threading and tweezing for a speedier treatment – and gives your brows the same defined look you can achieve from tweezing.

Browgraphy is available at all BROWHAUS and is priced at $38 (Threading), $40 (Tweezing) $42 (Thread & Tweeze)

The outlet I visited was Browhaus Paragon. This outlet theme reminds me of my high school time when I was camping with my friends. The minute I went in, I started to feel like I am not in Orchard Road but in some peaceful jungle 🙂  As you can see in the pictures below, Browhaus Paragon has successfully created an ambience where you won’t feel like you are in Orchard Road. The bed was comfortable for me to lie on. The therapist also provided me with a blanket in case I am feeling cold (I tend to feel cold easily). The place is also clean and tidy; I am enjoying my moment there. Cleanliness is very important for me every time I am going for any service. It is one of my consideration before going to any place and try their service. Browhaus is excellent in the cleanliness.

BROWHAUS PARAGON

Get comfy at the newly expanded Browhaus Paragon, inspired by fun campsite memories – get your brows groomed in one of a 7 cheerful coloured tents, or book into a cosy log cabin to be tucked away in total privacy.

Browhaus Paragon is located at 05-11 Paragon, tel: 6737 6585

Here’s my brief experience about the service:

The service I tried was thread and tweeze plus color tweak.  As explained above, Thread + Tweeze combines threading and tweezing for a speedier treatment – and gives your brows the same defined look you can achieve from tweezing. So far i have only had my brow tweezed professionally, I have not threaded my brow professionally. Firstly, the therapist would ask which design of brow you’d like to have. I personally like my brow to be long and thick. Then she started to tweeze my brow and finally thread it. In my opinion, thread hurts more than tweeze. But threading can clean up to your baby hair. Thus if you want to have a perfect brow, I would recommend you to have thread and tweeze. After the threading and tweezing, I had a Color Tweak service. As my hair color is black, I asked the therapist to darken my brow color. The color will last about two weeks. After I finished the whole service, the therapist applied Peace (2ml) ampoules to moisturize my after tweeze skin. This ampoules helps to cool down my skin.

Browhauz also provided me with a lash brow serum for me to try on. I have a relatively short eyelashes which sometimes annoys me. This product is claimed to longer your lashes or ticken your brow within two weeks. I was kind of excited to try this product and to see what’s the result.

Direction of use (taken from the packaging):

Apply a thin line of Extend to the base of lash line and/or eyebrow once a day after cleansing. Can be used on lower lash line too. Allow product to dry for several minutes before continuing your normal skincare regime. Reduce usage to 2 to 3 times weekly to maintain desired result.

My review on this product:

I have been applying this product on my lash line for two weeks. Honestly I hardly notice any grow in my lash. As much as I would love to like this product, I just can’t. In my case I think I would need a longer time to test this product. Maybe 2 weeks are not long enough for me to experience any growth in my lashes. I hope this product will work with other ladies to lengthen your lashes.

My final recommendation on the service and the product

Overall I am very satisfied with the service provided at Browhaus Paragon. The place is just perfect for any ladies or guys who’d like to enhance their eyebrows. The service was wonderful; the bed was clean, the tweezer was good and the most important is I love my brow! The therapist did a great job by creating a perfect brow that suits my wants. It looks long and thick without looking fake. I highly recommend this service 🙂 Moving on to the Lash and Brow Serum, I would really love to like this product but sadly this product has not delivered my expectation. I hope I would see my lashes grow in about 2 more weeks time. 🙂

That’s me a day after the treatment at Browhaus Paragon

Thank you for reading this post 🙂
